Children who grow up with pets are at lower risk for obesity and allergies

There is more and more research coming out on the benefits of a wide exposure to a variety of microorganisms. Below is an interesting study about the positive effects of being born into a family with dogs and cats.

University of Alberta, Canada study of 700 children (published in the journal Microbiome) found that babies exposed in the womb or born into homes with dogs and cats recorded an “abundance” of the microbes ruminococcus and oscillospira, the latter of which is associated with leanness or a lower body mass index.

It is believed that this kind of early exposure to bacteria creates a type of resistance. The study further suggests that exposure to dogs and cats significantly lowers the risk of group B strep – which causes blood infection, pneumonia and meningitis in newborns.

Practicing early detection for your pet is easy to do at home

My cat Roo is alive today because of ThePetCheckup.  I had huge medical expenses for his urinary tract infection, chronic diarrhea, coccidia – plus antibiotics and anti coccidia meds. I felt desperate. Any little stress causes this cascade of symptoms in him and he was only 8 months old.
Then I found ThePetCheckup!

Being able to test him myself, I caught his urinary infection early!!  This saves me so much money.
Roo is now 6 yrs old and frisky and healthy.

I credit his improved health to ThePetCheckup!
Thank you!
Sincerely,

Kim O., Texas
